Mr. Higley desired to grow his franchise and look to Idaho because of it’s growing agriculture and dairy industry. In 1988 Mr. and Mrs. Higley procured the Surge dealership, retained the name of Automated Dairy Systems, and moved to Jerome, Idaho.
Today, Automated Dairy has grown to over 100 employees with their corporate headquarters located in Jerome, Idaho. Automated Dairy also has offices Nampa ID., Rupert ID., Tulare CA., Gilbert AZ. and Fallon NV.
